THE PROJECT

The Beattie Productions / Off the Grid Studios Crew is hitting the road June 19th to shoot a fly fishing film for the 2016 Fly Fishing Film Tour. Our team has partnered with Adventure Destinations International to stalk the largest northern pike in the Northern Hemisphere.

THE PLACE

It’s human nature to conjure images of a new destination. Our ability to project is nothing short of astounding: We imagine what a place might look like, what adventures will emerge and what story will unfold. All we really know is that Saskatchewan is tough to spell and that we’re heading to its northern wilds this week.

A quick map glance reveals large swathes of road-less territory. More than 100,000 lakes dot the north country of Saskatchewan. We’ll be fishing some of the most remote bodies of water in North America.  Adventure Destinations runs three fishing lodges and six outpost camps in Central and Northern Saskatchewan, all of which offer access to some of the most pristine and untouched angling on the planet. Using float planes, we’ll jump from lake-to-lake and camp-to-camp. Last year the outfitters broke a long-standing lake record, when a client landed a 53-inch pike. Read more

Field Testing New GoPro HERO4 Black and Silver Models

GO-PRO-FIELD-TEST-REVIEW-BEATTIE

Our fiends at GoPro just sent over a care package with a few hot new GoPro models and accessories. At first glance at the spec list (below), the new GoPro4’s look fantastic. We’re going to review the HERO4 Silver and HERO4 Black. We’ll be testing these models in the coming weeks on a film expedition in Saskatchewan, Canada. We’ll be using the camera in remote locations as exterior cameras on various amphibious aircraft, underwater in various streams and lakes and as POV action cameras. The additional 4k and slow motion capabilities  – combined with enhancements to the in-the-field use (touch screen, power-on-reocrding, etc) should make these products even easier to operate in extreme conditions and the final product will be substantially higher quality than previous generations. In short, we’re stoked! Check back for updated from our extensive field test! Read more
